    What is the nature of the relationship between U.S. Forest Service researchers and private industrial foresters? How can Forest Service Research maintain independence while serving agency and private forestry managers? We decided to seek input from someone outside of the Forest Service, so I asked Pat Connell, Vice President of Resource Operations for Rocky Mountain Log Homes, Hamilton, MT, for his views. Pat is a member of the Ravalli County Resource Advisory Committee that works with local citizens and the Bitterroot National Forest.
